GOT Polish Challenge – Dots

Here is my dotty nails for the Crumpets GOT Polish Challenge!

I started with two coats of Scorn from Illamasqua, then I used Secret Agent from Color Club for the stamp, This is the first time I have used my new Lilly Anna Plate and it’s lovely, the images are really sharp 🙂 you can find the plate Here.

I then used a medium sized dotting tool to add more dots over the stamp using more Illamasqua Scorn, and then using a tiny doting tool to add the final purple dots with more of the Secret Agent!

I finished it with a coat of Seche Vite.

Poke, Snap and Scorn! Purple Dotted Stripe Nails.

The nail polishes I used for this are all from Illamasqua poke (purple shimmer) snap (silver) and scorn (black creme). Scorn has a semi matte/rubberized finish that I had completely forgotten about but the coat of Seche Vite made it all really glossy 🙂


Holographic Glitter Fish Nail Stamping.

Holographic Glitter Fish!

Holographic Glitter Fish!

For this manicure I decided to use an image from a Messy Mansion stamping plate that I don’t usually use! I really love this plate, it is one of my favorite plates from my collection 🙂

I started off with one coat of Style Slave fast finish polish from 17, followed by two coats of Starchild from Barielle Shades then a coat of Seche Vite to seal in the glitter. I used Konad special stamping polish for the image (and scorn from Illamasqua to cover the bits that I messed up) followed by yet another coat of Seche Vite.

I really like how this turned out the fish are so much more glittery than I can show in the pictures 🙂


Illamasqua Swatches in Poke, Snap, Faux Pas, Propaganda, Baptiste and Scorn.

Here are six lovely polishes from Illamasqua!

Scorn

This lovely Black has a wonderful satin finish, It is my favorite black polish! it dries in minutes and lasts for ages! I used one coat! with no base or top coat.

Baptiste

This is a lovely metallic dark purple, it’s almost a duo-chrome it’s so shimmery (almost but not quite) it has a very high gloss finish! This took two coats again with no base or top coat!

Propaganda

Apparently this polish is getting quite hard to find, I’m so glad managed picked this up when I did! This is a very dark blue jelly it’s almost black and incredibly high gloss, the formula for this is good but it does tend to drag if you are not really careful when applying it. This was 3 coats  in daylight 2 coats would be fine but my camera was picking up every brush stroke :/

Faux Pas

This polish has a rubber finish, it is a lovely mid purple with a grey base for some reason it is looking more violet from my camera. This was two coats the formula is really lovely, no streaking or dragging and as with all Illamasqua polishes it dries really quickly!

Snap

This is a lovely metallic shade, it has so much shimmer that i would say its close to a foil! this was one thin coat with no base or top coats, I have found that this is a really good polish for stamping!

Poke

I absolutely love this colour! It’s a bright purple with silver shimmer and a satin finish, the formula flows really smoothly, it dries really fast and it lasts (on my nails) all week!
